Study of Safety Management in Construction Industry
Abstract: Providing safe workplace conditions is one of the main purposes of a safety management system (SMS) in effective construction companies. The current study aims to establish a method for identifying and evaluating the factors that impact workplace safety conditions at construction sites. The fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (AHP) technique was used to determine and measure the qualitative factor weights affecting workplace safety to assist in the evaluation of multiple concurrent criteria. Hence, the fuzzy AHP technique was used to determine criterion weight. Alternatively, a fuzzy technique for Order Performance by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) model was used to evaluate the performance of companies and rank them according to their safety performance. By using these methods determines the leading companies in terms of best practices and provides information for government inspectors to investigate the priorities identified for inspection.
